Assisted Bareboat Sailing
What is Assisted Sailing?
Assisted Sailing in the Grenadines gives you the freedom to charter your own yacht, still bareboat, but with the added bonus of having on hand support. This is a great option if you know how to sail but need a little refresher and some added advice to brush away the cobwebs. At least one member of the crew must have a suitable practical qualification to charter and crew must have suitable experience.
What are the Benefits of Assisted Sailing?
Assisted Bareboat Charter allows anyone who is nervous about sailing bareboat in the Caribbean or just a bit rusty, to practice their skills with a professional skipper offering one on one personalised instruction.
Whether you have a skipper on board, or choose to sail yourselves, we allow you to have the support you need without having to do a flotilla holiday.
Having a skipper/instructor on your bareboat sailing holiday in the Caribbean, even for a day or more is a great way of allowing those crew who have never sailed before to get to a level where they can be assisting their skipper in sailing and mooring the boat in a safe and confident manner.
We highly recommend having an assisting skipper for one day if you have younger children or are sailing from Grenada. We can show the family whats safe, whats not, ensure everyone knows their jobs in different situations and help ensure a stress free sailing holiday!
This training can cover all the important basics from safety, mooring, sails up and down, man overboard procedures, anchoring in bays etc. It is very relaxed teaching - at your pace.
For anyone looking for some additional coaching, whether it be to practice Mediterranean stern-to mooring, long lining or simply refresh the crew on MOB techniques or to practice sailing in stronger winds with the family, this is a great way to build confidence without having to do a formal training course.
Whatever you want to learn in the Caribbean, we are more than happy to show you.
What is Included?
As well as all of the above we offer a free Weather SMS everyday, FREE anchoring and buoy pick up training, free food and drink welcome pack, outboard and spare fuel, bbq and gas, towels, tea-towels and bed linen, a fully equipped yacht plus lots more. The yacht is spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything from spare batteries, pegs, bin bags etc to all navigation gear to masks and snorkels. We also do a last night drinks so you can talk over your week and unwind, sharing your experiences with the other guests.
If you would like someone to meet you in the evening for the first couple of days this is no problem at all.
You can sail as soon as you arrive. If you are arriving in the evening in the Grenadines for your charter and want to get going early we will be around from as early as 7am on your first day. Every one of our yachts has express check out.
You even get a skipper for your first morning, absolutely free of charge! (transport costs additional for dropping them off on another island!)
We are on hand 24 hours a day in the unlikely event that you should have any major issues (hopefully you wont!).
